to force a vote on president obama's 2014 budget. oh, wait, there is no 2014 president obama budget. the president missed a deadline set by law to submit the plan. but g.o.p. wanted to set up a vote on a blank piece of paper. the congressman joins us, what happened? >> we'll find out later tonight. we offered 34 pages of question marks and you can't offer a blank piece of paper. but in order for an amendment, you have 35 pages and numbers filled in. you look at paul ryan's, the numbers are filled in. we didn't have numbers so we put question marks. >> greta: i find it appalling when people can't meet deadlines. he missed february 4th deadline. he said late march and that's not happening and now april. and totally to me it's such disregard with the law when the law said that. he's not the first one. many presidents before him have blown off this deadline, nonetheless-- >> actually the first president ever. >> greta: to be last, to be last. >> to go after the house or the senate. >> greta: not the first to ignore the deadline. i'm curious, you don't need the president's budget to go f
that takes the obama care the affordable budget act and destroy it is. to not even call it a starting position, is a wrong thing to do senator murray, they're not going to raise new revenue right awach. republicans have a point, democrats have a point. there are three things they can do that doesn't cost any money there may be disagreement here. but it's producing jobs. approve the keystone pipeline, your own state department said it's okay. that wril be a subject for great discussion and debate in a few minutes. >> i think the notion of some tax reform, democrats have agreed to capping some deductions, the republicans like to see some changes in corporate tax rates, we can probably find a deal on that sooner than some of the other things, which might help prolong both howard and james, i think accurately spoke to it. this economy is moving in the right direction. >> james, let me ask you a question. i think to a certain degree -- look, blame can go around on both sides of the aisle. but two some degree there's a false equivalency that house democrats and house republicans are equal i
did not have a budget resolution. we had president obama sign the law that took care of our budget problems here. but we want to satisfy the republicans, and we want to get to that budget today. i talked about here this morning what a terrific job chairman murray has done on this bill. and she has. it's been really outstanding. but the budget is here by virtue of a law that was passed. there are 50 hours permitted for debate on the budget and then we can have a lot of amendments after all debate time is over. so the republicans said let's do the budget debate, and we say let us do it. why should we sit around here and look at each other and do nothing? my friend, the chairman of the -- i'm sorry, the ranking member of the budget committee, the junior senator from alabama, said let's do it after easter. madam president, we're going to do this. we are going to do this before we go home for easter. if they want to use the whole 60 hours, we'll start the debate on the budget sometime thursday morning. and we'll have 50 hours and a lot of votes. if that's what they want to do, we can do
turn for republicans who have based all their budget cutting proposals on the idea that we do have a debt crisis. republicans in the age of obama have never wanted to mount a frontal, philosophical attack on social security and medicare because they're the two most popular things the american government provides. so instead of saying we want to cut and or eliminate social security and medicare because like rand we do not believe the government should be in the business of providing health care and or pensions and disability benefits to anyone, ever. instead, republicans have been saying we love medicare and we love social security but we simply can't afford those programs in their current form because of our debt crisis, because of our huge budget deficit, so reluctantly and bravely, we republicans propose significant cuts to medicare and social security, cuts that we republicans believe will make those programs more solvent and last longer. because remember, we republicans love medicare, just love it, and we love social security. we just can't afford them. dropping the budget cris

to see us balance the budget not just for my children, but for my grandchildren and if president obama is willing to do that with us like president clinton reached across the aisle, i will be the first in line to give him credit for that, because i believe all america will benefit. i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: thank you, mr. chairman. i want to respond to a few of the comments from the chairman with respect to health care and medicare costs. as we indicated earlier, we have seen a dramatic slowing in the per capita increase in health care costs. that's a good thing. that's, in part, we believe as a result of changes in the affordable care act. and as a result of that, the so-called independent advisory board that our colleagues misleadingly refer to as a bunch of bureaucrats, won't even any job to do for at least 10 years, probably longer. now, if health care costs per capita start rising more quickly, then their tasks are to propose a way to reduce those health care costs
the decades to what the republicans want in the state battle we had in 2011, the budget control act was obama needs the debt ceiling to be increased because we spent so much money and republican said okay, we will raise the debt ceiling so the country doesn't default but only if you agree to a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. that $2.5 trillion in spending restraints, not real cuts, spending, less than obama had hoped but in washington that is called a cut. if you want 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you walked away with eight but so that was the $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we have several problems. the trillion dollars that obama obama -- obamacare tax increases in this decade have begun to hit now. oddly enough the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, both of them after the 2012 election so everybody voted and now the tax increase has hit. this is not helpful for the economy and they think it's going to be unpleasant. >> host: up next from watertown south dakot
energy. and it also means a more secure retirement. listen, we balance the budget back in the mid 1990's along with president bill clinton. out of that plan we actually did balance a budget and led to one of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise. work with the republicans in congress together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance a budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. >> good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrasts. years.get balances in 10 their budget never balances. and raises $1 worth of taxes. i think the question for the american people s. which budget actually helps? which helps people? well, i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people out there looking for the government to do the very same thing they are having to do at home. which budget helps those who are in need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. theirs
of the reservation with this budget. d.c. democrats' priorities are just so far removed from the actual needs of middle class cayennes and americans who continue to struggle in the obama economy. >> reporter: and house budget chair paul ryan a few minutes ago called it a good week for house republicans, because he says they are presenting the country a budget that balances in a responsible way. jon? jon: seems like a lot of finger pointing still underway on capitol hill. mike emanuel. >> reporter: i guess. jon: thanks. jenna: a key vote is set to take place on a plan that sees up to 10 percent of some bank goes -- deposits in cypress. it's raising a whole lot of questions worldwide because of the precedent it might set. greg talcott is live in london so, greg, how do things stand now in cyprus? >> reporter: jenna, we are less than an hour to the start of a debate on that plan. reports are that plan has been modified to make it a bit easier to take. the reports again say that there will be no tax or levy imposed on depositors around $30,000 or so but anywhere from 7-10% on all deposits after t

more on budget issues voters trusted the democrats by 35%. it is a bigger margin than the margin of victory for president obama in november. the republicans 30%. that is on trust, that is as they say in the trade a big deal. the national republican committee today issued a scathing self critique of the republican party recent failures focus groups describe republicans as narrowminded, out of touch. $1.2 billion last year in the last presidential election alone and the future of the g.o.p. understanding you can't get it done just with money. as a result, the republican national committee has decided to pour resources into its ground game targeting youth and women and hispanics and other minorities while focusing on making the party's message more inclusive and open to different views. i don't know what they paid for the study, but that is kind of vague, don't you think? he had this to say to me last year. >> we can have all the voter contact in the world, but if it is not over a long period of time, it is not going to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six month
this is a historic visit for president obama. >> now's the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful steps to reduce tensions. >> taxing more, borrowing more, and spending more is not a path to prosperity. >> republican budget is same baby with a new diaper. >> the republicans are just totally bamboozled. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> we do have an immediate problem. >> they think they got landslided and they didn't. >> more than half of our members have never dealt with the issue of immigration reform. >>> we start today with all eyes on one of the most volatile regions of the world. as the president prepares to fly to israel just a few short hours from now. and while the president and prime minister netanyahu already have a congested agenda, ranging from the arab spring, to the israeli/palestinian conflict, there was yet another disturbing development today in syria when both the rebels and forces loyal to president assad accused each other of firing chemical weapons that syrian state tv has said killed at least 25 people in the north of the country.
. the ryan republican budget introduced earlier this week reflects an entirely different set of priorities, skewed priorities americans have rejected time and time again. this is the third go-around. president obama was re-elected basically for a number of reasons but not the least of which was the ryan republican budget. they are at it again. it would hand out more budget-busting tax breaks for the wealthy and to pay for these wasteful tax breaks. it would end medicare guaranteed. it would rob 50 million americans of everyday affordable health insurance and raise the taxes on american families. the ryan republican budget would risk lives and risk recovery, and that's just a price too high. i was stunned this morning, mr. president. a republican congress writes an op-ed piece -- i don't know if it was in the "times" or "the post" but saying the ryan republican budget isn't good enough for the tea party. it should be even more stringent than that. that's what we're faced with here, mr. president. and the work done by chairman murray reflects the priorities of the american people. not the --

next week's budget fight, the respective caucuses have just closed their doors on the republican budget for next year. meanwhile the sequester cuts start to kick in and president obama is getting flack for canceling white house tours. now there is word -- no it's not. all right. so thanks so much. we'll check in with our kelly o'donnell on mark sanford. we just showed you the video. kelly, you're there for me, right? >> reporter: i can hear you, thomas. i'm not sure you can see me. >> yes, i can see and hear you and it looks like you have beautiful trees in south carolina behind you. let's talk about south carolina. it is primary day down there. mark sanford been getting a lot of press and a lot of the coverage i've been reading about is this is going to be a street fight for how this will advance. >> well, this is one of those occasions, thomas, where the sheer number of candidates makes this so unpredictable. it's rare to have an opening like this in south carolina politics where people in office tend to stay a long time. so 16 republicans jumped in, including the former governor, and

at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years, president obama made that worse although the republicans in congress ten years ago didn't cover themselves and the changing face of america. we have many more now supported by workers for the retirement programs and a noble important purpose. they need to be preserved for the next generation. >> you are a proud veteran and something i find to be interesting to some degree of polling is the lack of availability for benefits for those who have served so nobly and come home. i want to put up the stats for you. veterans affairs data. 600,000 veterans have benefits and 245,000 have benefitings back lock logged aier or more. the average is 273 days. the first time claimants from iraq and afghanistan, the average wait is 316 days. how come if you go out and fight for your country and bleed and come back wounded, you are waiting up to a year t
problem? >> right, it was unpatriotic four years ago when obama was running for president dirt was unconscionable what bush had done but enough it's fine and we don't have a problem. this democratic budget presented by the house is a joke. the thought of increasing stimulus spending 2.200 billion. solyndra wasn't have no. the -- it is this government's notion that we want to constrain economic growth by continuing to grow the size and scope of the federal government. this would not even balance the budget until something like 2045, and even then wouldn't do it in ten years we would be spending 70% of gdp on public debt. >> neil: i'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to people who can't understand money. money in and my out. that's fine. and we don't have a great spending problem. so, status quo. but we're adding more spending. we're looking at $200 million more among house democrats, $100 million among senate democrats, as if this problem doesn't exist. then we're saying, clearly emboldened by leadership to say, balancing the budget in ten years, it's not the end all be al
